Your Honeymoon in Bora Bora
Apogee of romanticism, Bora Bora is the favorite spot of lovers from all around the world. Its crystal-clear waters appear on most Polynesian postcards and earn it its “Pearl of the Pacific” nickname. Bora Bora is like a jewel surrounded by a wreath of waves. The Mount Otemanu overhangs this aquatic casket with its steep sides. Both beaming sun and light breeze are perfectly suitable for tête-a-tête picnics by the beach. To put it in a nutshell, Bora Bora is to Oceania what Venice is to Italy, it embodies love. Thus, it is no surprise that thousands of couples decide to take the plunge every year and come spend their honeymoon in Bora Bora.
Why should you spend your honeymoon in Bora Bora?
An Earth made Paradise:
Even though there are plenty of destinations worth to be visited a few miles away from you, Bora Bora has this special little thing which often turns the scales. White sand beaches, an infinity of islets which resemble chain links surrounding a majestic island gem, coconut trees shaping the horizon and breathtaking panoramas wherever you go. Houses are bathed in light as the sunbeams hit the hills and the whole island is surrounded by a gigantic halo, which gives it its peculiar aura.
The Hospitality and diversity of the Culture:
This annual sun exposure everyone dreams about is partially responsible for its attractiveness among newlyweds however this overwhelming warmth is also to be found in the smile of its inhabitants.
Let’s face it, if there is something everyone envies us more than weather, it is the natural Polynesian hospitality. In Bora Bora, tourism is considerably more developed than in other archipelagos, which is why its inhabitants are more accustomed to welcoming people. This strong sense of hospitality is not a myth, here we like to share. Generosity implies to share ones knowledge, ones culture and traditions. When you come to Bora Bora, you not only discover a paradisal setting, but you also enter the universe of its people. It is up to you to learn a new language, teach yourself the basics of arts and crafts, make your own flower crown or try to reproduce the first steps of Ori Tahiti. The magic in travel is not just about the degree of exoticism of the destination, it is also about the lessons you learn from your encounters.
Exceptional and fun activities:
Even though it is really sweet to sunbathe on the beach while sipping on a Maita’I, to hang about in your overwater bungalow while holding a glass of Champagne, to stare at the stars from your hammock, a great honeymoon must combine fancy activities.
It would be a shame to come to Bora Bora and not fully appreciate the range of nautical possibilities. Snorkel within the crystal-clear lagoon, put on your diving suit and explore the biodiversity of the ocean, graze the waves with your jet ski, paddle by the beach, try to catch the biggest fish or discover the main island from your traditional outrigger canoe…
If you feel more comfortable on earth, there is a few hikes you are likely to enjoy but if you do not feel like walking, you can still book an ATV or a 4×4 tour and give you some time to contemplate this lush nature.
Eventually, if you are willing to gain altitude, choose the upward parachute or the helicopter tour.
The paroxysm of romanticism:
If Bora Bora is so prised by lovers from all around the world, it is because everything here is related to romanticism. Could you dream of anything better than a candlelight dinner facing the Mount Otemanu, a cocktail in the lagoon during sunset or a tête-à-tête in the private pool of your overwater bungalow? An idyllic setting, a magical atmosphere, a tropical climate and a peaceful location, there is no better place to escape, relax and get away from daily stress.
Bora Bora is like a bubble where you feel utterly cut off from the rest of the world. Wherever you go, your hosts will make sure you feel unique and privileged. Whatever the accommodation you decide to stay at, these moments will last in your memory forever.
An exotic gastronomy:
Just like any other island of French Polynesia, Bora Bora is famous for its exotic dishes. Like in most archipelagos, you can taste a delicious raw fish with coconut milk, po’e, taro, fafaru or korori with mitihue (take a look at our blog section to know more about it). However, Bora Bora is probably the only island where you can find as many luxury resorts and get to eat five-star meals wherever you go. Smoked lagoon fish, passion fruti sorbets, a great bottle of wine and your taste buds will thank you…

At the same time, you must establish a projected budget in order to see on which elements you may both be willing to make concessions and what your refuse to sacrifice.
Eventually, you need to set your departure date, which is an element you should definitely not neglect as it can have a great impact regarding the pricing of your quotation. The climate variable must also be taken into account: even though Bora Bora enjoys a temperate climate, with 77°F in average, the rainy season is not really indicated if you plan to stay here (except if you like to snug in your blankets watching a good movie but it would be a shame not to get to explore the luxuriant nature). Austral winter is probably a more appropriate choice, from April to October when the precipitations are less heavy and the atmosphere is way more agreeable.
Which accommodation should you choose for your honeymoon in Bora Bora?
As Bora Bora is one of the most prized destinations on earth, the accommodation offer happens to be quite diversified. Everyone wants to spend their dream vacation in an overwater bungalow and there are plenty of them, for all budgets: from the simple bungalow facing the beach to the end of pontoon duplex with private pool and jacuzzi. You will even be given the opportunity to choose between an Otemanu or a sunset view.
If you want to get closer to facilities, you also have a bunch of options: the garden bungalows, the beach villas or the private suites. These categories combine luxury, intimacy, quietness and well-being. Besides, most of these establishments feature gourmet restaurants, spas, fitness centers and turn out to be located on a private motu, which does contribute to reinforce this feeling of being utterly alone on earth.
If you cannot afford staying in such an accommodation, other attracting alternatives are available. Namely the guest houses, which are economical and enable you to meet the inhabitants of the island, get to know their customs, their culture and to taste yummy homemade dishes. In addition to that, most boarding houses are located by the lagoon and happen to be real gems as they are comfortable and nicely decorated. All you have to do is take a look at our selection and make up your mind. Afterwards, lay down on the beach and enjoy the moment.
